Initial Reading in Spanish for Bilinguals.
Herbert, Charles H., Jr.
"Initial Reading in Spanish" is a project designed to produce a detailed, descriptive analysis of procedures used to teach Spanish-speaking children in the United States to read in their native language. This document describes the procedures in developing and evaluating such a reading program. The initial step in the program was to observe Spanish reading instruction in several Mexican schools. Observations of procedures and methods used in Mexico were used to devise a program tested in four locations in the United States. Several forms were developed to standardize the procedures for evaluating the program. Extensive videotaping was done in the four experimental classrooms. The final report on the project shows the results of the observations and evaluations made during the project and describes the teaching methodologies that were used. This report summarizes the teaching methodologies and the general results of the project. (VM)
